The villin headpiece subdomain

This set of projects are assigned to the ATI GPU2 core. We're studying the villin headpiece subdomain, the lambda repressor monomer, and WW domain fip35. Each of these is commonly studied in experiments probing protein folding; simulating these molecules using GPU2 not only helps us to test the ATI core but allows us to better understand published experimental results.

Together, we are using large-scale simulation methods to unravel the mysteries of protein folding and related diseases, such as Alzheimer's Disease. We are continuing to use Folding@home in order to learn more about Alzheimer's Disease, in particular to discover new therapeutics, such as this recent work from our group.
